Theft of Pedal Cycles
This year Woodley has unfortunately had an increase in thefts of bicycles. Woodley local policing team have been working very closely with partner agencies to try and tackle this issue as a priority. PC Mills is currently in the process of interviewing suspects that have been identified, we will update you in due course when this has concluded.
Over October and November especially Halloween, we received calls from the community in regards to young people acting in an anti-social manner. The team were busy throughout the evening tackling this and subsequently three boys under the age of 18 were arrested for possession of fireworks after PCSOs were confronted with people throwing fireworks towards them. We urge you to please report any incidents of anti-social behaviour that you encounter.
We are aware as a neighbourhood team of a couple of individuals in the local area that have been seen to be persistently begging. Although we know this is frustrating, we are encouraging members of the public to be reporting this in via 101 or the web form on the Thames Valley Police website. We are in the process of collating statements from witnesses which will help us to build and collate as much evidence to take the offenders in question to court. Although this may be sound time consuming and nothing happening quickly however we reassure you that we are taking this very seriously. However we can only do this witheveryone’s help & support.
We would like to wish you all a peaceful and crime free Christmas.
